Being Obedient In All Things

When you are suffering a trial, look into your life and see when maybe you did not obey God somewhere. It may be so small that you didn't give it a second thought. But God Did!

Sometimes, we think we know better than God. I mean if the Holy Spirit told us to do something, and we dismiss it as thinking it is insignificant, then basically we are saying that we know better than God, in this matter.

God showed me in my own life, how by being disobedient to something that He was dealing with me about, that I was causing division in my house and the word says that a house divided against itself will not stand.

Luke 11 vs 17-23.....but He knowing their thoughts, said to them: "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls. If Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? Because you say I cast out demons by Beelzebub. And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. But if I cast out demons with the finger of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. When a strong man, fully armed, gaurds his own palace, his goods are in peace. But when a stronger than he comes upon him and overcomes him, he takes from him all his armor in which he trusted, and divides his spoils. he who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters.....

Another point here is that if someone or something comes against you, whose armor is stronger than yours, you will lose your peace and begin to succomb and fall into their snares. Your armor is the word of God, not just the word of God but the word of God mixed with Faith and spoken out loud. When you speak the word of God, it is as if God Himself is speaking and His word spoken will not come back void. So when God tells you to do something don't dismiss it as that you will do it later, or just thinking well, that won't be so bad if I do not do it. God would not waste His time telling you to do something, if He did not mean for you to do it.

And the third point in this scripture is he who does not gather with Me scatters. This is telling us that if we are not working with God and doing what He tells us to do, then we are like scattering His angels in other directions instead of bringing them together to help us fight our battles. In other words, we are trying to fight on our own strengths and our own understandings and not with God's army of angels that He has at the ready for us when we use His spoken word.

God gives us the authority to speak what He says into action, all we have to do is be obedient.
Stop trying to fight your own battles, and be obedient to what God is telling you to do.

God Bless you each one with Victory in all your battles
